We had 55 artists exhibiting their creativity at this wonderful Ennis Arts Festival today.
Come and see a few of the booths, artists, and special visitors with me.
One of our artists,
designs creative fine, wearable art.
The center of this bison by Ivette
is melted wax,
a technique called encaustic.
It was fun setting up tents on a beautiful Saturday morning…
Kim’s Photography was/is gorgeous.
We are establishing a scholarship in her honor
to be awarded to an Ennis High graduating senior
who will focus on art as a major
Tiki Contemporary & Western Art by Kathleen Van Diessche is amazing!
John’s Rustic Originals made with old kitchen silverware and utinsels were so clever!
There were several wonderful pottery booths
with a myriad of pottery to choose from.
The barbed wire artist was new to us this year. His creations were fascinating.
One booth was for Ennis Arts Association members
who wanted to display one to three items,
but didn’t want to fill a booth space of their own.
The three in the background are the work of Carle McCambridge.
Carla Cavaiani used old spoons to create beautiful art pieces.
I love this bluebird photography by Scott Wheeler (see my reflection in the glass taking this photo with my cell phone?)…Makes an interesting study, doesn’t it?
Come fly on over here next year – second Saturday in August – for another phenomenal festival.
Bob & I don’t see the river from our house, but we look out at Jack Creek Canyon in that magnificent Madison Range. The western sunset reflecting red in the eastern mountains often is part of our night’s “light show.”
These next two photos are mine…
taken a couple weeks ago
when we still had some snow on the ground.
Here is the western view.
Our house is the one tucked in
all those evergreen trees out there…
… and here is the eastern reflection:
